Mubarak: Israel will anger all Muslims if it doesn't resolve J'lem status

Mubarak to Peres Israel

Israel will anger all Muslims if it does not resolve Jerusalem's disputed status, Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak warned his Israeli counterpart Shimon Peres on Sunday. Mubarak emphasized to Peres that the future of Jerusalem is an issue for the entire Islamic world. "I expressed my concern to President Peres that peace talks have not progressed since our last meeting in July and that Egypt is looking forward to an Israeli response, such as halting the building of settlements in east Jerusalem," he said.
